Level 1

Recommended for students ages 3 ½ and up.  Students are grouped in 30-minute classes based on their skill level.  Safety skills are taught at every level.

Our focus in Level 1 classes is on water adjustment, becoming comfortable in the water and feeling the buoyancy and balance of the water.  In this level, the student learns to be comfortable going under the water.  Quality Swimming does not force any child to go under.  We give the cues and wait for when a child is ready.    We want every child to feel as if they can “live in the water.”

We teach the following skills in Level 1 classes:
